Now-a-days, there is so much adulteration in food and drink for maximum economic benefit, which is causing great harm to our body. Many such things are also mixed which also harm our brain.

Therefore, always eat and drink good quality things. The lower intake of alcohol is better.

Do not eat stale food and avoid dry food too. Drink more than 3 liters water a day. Along with this, consume fruit juices and other benefits of natural substances, from time to time.

Remember, the more quality food and drink you give to the body, the more physical and mental healthy life you will live.

So the very first step to relieve stress is to make a quality diet and drink habit.

Head massage with a good quality oil is a good idea to reduce stress. It increases the blood flow in your brain, which helps to release the harmful chemicals from brain and let you feel good and relax. Again it leads to you for a better sleep which is very  helpful to relieve stress.

So it will be very good for you if you will massage your head with a good oil regularly.

Another good idea to release stress is, change the place. Of course it is not possible always but it is very effective.

When you change your place it takes you to a new mind zone. In a new place our mind requires 3 to 4 days to  settle down with that new environment and conditions. Till that your mind focuses on new things and avoid stress. Actually your mind gets a change which it loves.

So at that time you can make new habits and new mindset to go ahead in your life. It is easy and possible. Personally I have done it in my life a lot of time.

You can go to a friend, for a weekend, to a relative or change the place of living if possible. It will definitely overcome yourself from stress.

15. Avoid Laziness


A lazy person is an easy traget of stress. When you have no certain things to do or less things to do, your mind attract negativity. It leads to increase stress.

But when you make yourself busy and your mind is engaged, stress automatically goes down. So you need to make yourself physically and mentally active. It will make you stress free.

Here I am not talking to make yourself busy in entertainment or such kind of things. I am saying to involve yourself on some golas or work more to make your life better and better. Choose things which will give you happiness and put your efforts to achieve them. When in this way you will be make yourself active physically and mentally, stress will be reduce from your life. This should be the very first step to

Remember it is very important. Passimistic persons are very dangerous. They will damage your psychology for sure. Negative people are like a virus. They spread negativity, which is the root factor of stress. So keep distance from negative people as much as possible.

And connect yourself to people who are optimistic, who they can talk possitive with you and motivate you. This should be the very first step to take for reduce stress.

17. Vision, Purpose or Goal

Who they have a clear vision in their life are rarely suffer by stress. Again who they have clear purpose or goal in life, are also rarely suffer by stress.

Most of the people have no clarity in their life. They just learn limited things, acquire a basic occupation and think all done. They just go with the flow in their life.

This leads them to suffer in the certain point of life. Because they have not any certain move in their life. They have not a prticular way to go.

This uncertainty results in a way which becomes the base for stress.

So to overcome this problem you need to have clarity in your life, a certain purpose, certain goal and a clear vision. You can be easily deal with stress in this way.


18. Chewing Gum

Research says  gum chewing also reduces stress.

Is not is great!

Just buy a chewing gum and start chewing. Anyone can do it. And your stress will be decrease.

19. Your Mindset

Maximum people suffer by stress because they are not able to accept the reality as it is. Either it is the matter of career, love or relationship, nothing can be fully in your control. So uncertainty is always there.

People avoid this reality. Maximum time in maximum things they think everything is set.

But it is just an illusion, not the reality!"

In that case if you run your life based upon any kind of myth like this then you can be deeply injured psychologically if anything wrong happens in your life, for which there is a big chance because now a days our life is affected by too many things.

So you need to be aware about the present civilization, mindset and priority of others and present human psychology. Because when you will be aware, yoi can be easily accept the reality and your expectations will be based upon the reality.

This will make you more strong, intelligent and adoptable. As a result you can be able to deal with anything easily and stress will not enter in your life.

Note>>> Mostly leaders and big personalities apply it. This is why they are able to rule on pressure whereas others suffer by pressure and finally enters in the zone of stress.

20. Write down your feelings

A very effective way to overcome from stress is to write down your feelings.

Negative thoughts are natural. When you tied up by those, you fall in stress. So you need to come out from that psychological state.

But how!"

Because when you are in stress, your conscious mind can't able to take right decision for your life. Otherwise we all know that stress is just a psychological state and that has not any real physical existence. Stress cannot solve any problem, infact it increases problems.

So in that situation you need a third party who can remind yourself regularly that it is just a psychological trap.

It happens when you write down your stress. Your consciousness comes in to action and you enter in the zone of self counselling. Now by right kind of questions you can remove yourself from stress.

Questions like :-

  • Will stress solve your problem?
  • Is stress the problem or it is the reaction of the problem?
  • How is stress affecting you?

21. Exercise and sleep

Normally people who they are in stress, can't experiance good sleep. Whereas it naturally kills stress. A lot of time I have done it in my life. When I feel stress, I take long and deep sleep.

But maximum people can't sleep due to stress. In that case do exercise. Remember exercise also reduce your stress.

When you do a good quantity of exercise followed by a good sleep, you feel there is no stress left in your mind. Don't worry, after a good quantity of exercise you will feel sleepy because you will be tired properly.


Stress is a very natural thing. You experience it when something doesn't happen according to you.

But you have to understand that everything will never happen according to you. Because you are a part of this universe and it affects you in any case.

So there is only one way. Take everything as it happened. Because you cannot change that. But yes, how you will accept that is in your control. Then you can get the best out of that.

Actually every happening is a result of some other happenings. We get positive or negative from that according to ourselves. All depends on our mindset, thoughts, acceptence and efforts. You can make that matter as a source of stress or a reason to upgrade yourself.

Choice is yours!
